INTERTWINED WORLDS: THE JUDAEO-ISLAMIC TRADITION
11-12 SEPTEMBER 2011
The symposium aims to examine the state of play in the academic study of Muslim-Jewish relations. It is envisaged that the symposium will consist of two parts: 1) presentations by the invited participants that will explore the diverse ways in which the traditions, cultures and heritage of the Jews and Muslims of the Islamic world were interconnected in history; and 2) a round table discussion involving all participants and invited guests.
Invited international speakers who will serve as round table discussants will be asked to address three central questions which will guide the discussion: Is there/could there be a Judaeo-Islamic tradition? How do we define it? How do we study this tradition?
